Screen Inaccuracies: 212th Sideshow clone trooper

Take a good look at the comparison between Sideshow's Utapau Clone trooper, beside the On-screen look of a 501st trooper. (Both helmets, 212th battalion and 501st are supposedly similar)

However judging from the pictures, there is an obvious difference at the frown below the *teeth* of the utapua helmet. Furthermore the microphone tips are not accurate either. I have circled out the errors. and you can compare the below picture to the screen reference picture.

It obviously appears that the error was that the whole section below the *teeth* of the helmet was made too angular and trianglized ( downwards) instead of a smooth transisioned bump/hump.

It is pretty evident that in terms of screen accuracy, Sideshow continually fails to deliver, as opposed to medicom. However, i must say that price still somewhat determines much of consumer's choice.

FAILURE! The 501st is a picture from the movie and the 212th is a cheap model you can get at the grocery store.

The 212th trooper's helmet is based from the series"Star Wars The Clone Wars".That is why the teeth portion is Much more triangular.
